The Purpose of this Blog

Your task on this blog is to write a brief summary of what we learned in class today. Include enough detail so that someone who was ill or missed the lesson can catch up with what they missed. Over the course of the term, these 'class scribe' posts will grow to be a guide book for the course, written by students for students.

With each post ask yourself the following questions:
1) Is this good enough for our guide book?
2) Will your post enable someone who wasn't here to catch up?
3) Would a graphic/video/link help to illustrate what we have learned?

Whereby, establishes a sense of terror in the readers' minds.


  2. Lockwood and Nelly are narrators who both tell the story but still leave the reader confused and out of the loop. This fragmented narration is what makes Wuthering Heights such a good Gothic novel. However due to the fragmented narrative, readers need to fill in gaps in the narration for themselves.
